Fact 1 – Beer Tunes

Old English drinkers had whistles baked in the rim of ceramic cups, which they blew to order refills; hence the phrase “wet your whistle”.

In days when ale was served in pints and quarts, a bartender would order unruly drinkers to “mind their pints and quarts” and settle down – since clipped to P’s & Q’s.

Fact 3 - Thumbs up!

Pre thermometers brewers used a rule of thumb to test the temperature for adding yeast.
